Thank you


There is definitely a pair in this group that have taken to each other. They hang out together and chase the two others away. Whether they are a breeding pair is a different story.

I hope so. (crosses fingers).

Finally moved the Altums to the 180 gallon. I waited too long to transfer them over because of my nervousness in putting them from one tank to another. Watching them carefully, however, because of the large school of African tetras. None of these tetras have nipped at the long tailers of the geophagus sveni; but, that doesn't mean they wouldn't nip at the Angels. So far so good.

They are a bit timid of the oafish geophagus-- but, these guys are like silly puppy-dogs. Seriously, they are the most docile cichlids Ive ever had. Beautiful; but, not the smartest.
